Another challenging week complete! Just finished week 2 of running and it’s sooo hard. What in the world am I doing to myself? LOL Shin splints are sooo painful ugh
I love going to the gym but lately it’s really hard to find an open treadmill and especially hard to find two next to each other so Kev and I can workout together. Plus I’m a bit irritated that our gym has probably FOUR broken treadmills and this afternoon there were kids playing on them, hitting buttons, etc. Unacceptable! I will be talking with management this week to make sure they take care of it.
Anyway here are my workouts for the week.

This coming week will be a bit off since I’m getting ready for a business trip. I’m hoping for sure to be posting next Sunday that I exercised while on vacation. The plan is to workout M, W, F, S, Su so we’ll see.
Today after the gym we went to The Running Depot where I got my new running shoes a few weeks ago so Kev could get a pair too. We bought more running socks (I love these things!) AND I also got a pair of shin splint sleeves and I sure hope they work! I will be wearing them during running this week so we shall see. There were two different kinds and I liked the sleeves better than the wraps so that’s what I bought.
I sure hope this running stuff gets easier! It would be really cool to find a pro runner who could watch me on the treadmill to see if I’m running correctly and maybe to give me some tips. I would ask the trainers at the gym but I want an actual runner to assess me to make sure I am doing what I’m supposed to be doing. We’ll see!
Did you exercise this week? If so, how did it go?
